The head spin in The Exorcist Report Abuse
This scene has always sent chills down my arms as we see Linda's Blair's character truly unravel. There is something so purely evil and horrific about it, making it extremely unsettling.

The shower scene from Psycho Report Abuse
Probably the most classic scene in any horror movie, this scene was so scary it made me terrified of going into the shower for fear that someone might stab me through the curtain.

The twins in the hallway in The Shining Report Abuse
There are so many iconic scenes in The Shining it's hard to pick just one. But this was probably the most eerie and terrifying.

The toy clown in Poltergeist Report Abuse
I never really understood the fear of clowns until I saw this movie. Now I cannot look at them without being overcome with a feeling of creepiness.

Drew Barrymore on the phone in Scream Report Abuse
The tension in this opening scene is really built up, with Drew Barrymore's character burning the popcorn and setting off the fire alarm all as we are realizing that this prank caller means serious business. Few people expected her to die right in the first scene of the movie, making it all the more shocking.
